The purpose of this project was to address community identity issues and update the 1995 comprehensive plan. Through surveying, public meetings and community forum, this planning process encouraged extensive participation from the public. Gateways and themed signage issues were addressed. The city needed to have an identity to match their motto “Oregon on the Bay.” Access to the bay was another main topic of discussion. The city had little public access to the bay and recommendations were given to encourage better access points and directional signage.
Developed and designed gateway signage and community image issues.
Public process that included design charrettes.
Extensive public input component included a password-encrypted online survey.
